BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the boundaries of the senatorial districts described above shall be:
(a) The boundaries of the counties listed above as such boundaries existed as of January 1, 2002.
(b) The boundaries of the precincts listed above as such boundaries are contained in Census 2000 redistricting maps (Public Law 94-171) Tiger line file; and
(c) The boundaries of the census tracts and blocks listed above as such boundaries are contained in Census 2000 redistricting maps (Public Law 94-171) Tiger line file.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That this resolution shall be liberally construed to effectuate the purposes thereof and to redistrict the Senate of this state in compliance with constitutional requirements.
It is intended that this resolution and the districts described herein completely encompass all the area within the state. It is also intended that such districts contain all the inhabitants in this state. It is further intended that the redistricting provided for in this resolution result in the creation of districts which are substantially equal in population. It is also intended that no district shall include any of the area included within the description of any other district.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the redistricting of representative districts and senate districts shall be deemed to be separate from each other. The invalidity of the districts of one house shall not affect or require the redistricting of the other house when the districts of the other house have been found to be valid by a court of competent jurisdiction.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That if the districts described in this resolution do not carry out the purposes thereof, because of unintentional omissions; duplications; overlapping areas; erroneous nomenclature; lack of adequate maps or descriptions of political subdivisions, wards or other divisions thereof, or of their boundary lines, then the Secretary of State, at the request of the Senate Elections Committee shall, by order, correct such omissions, overlaps, erroneous nomenclature or other defects in the description of districts so as to accomplish the purposes and objectives of this resolution.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That in promulgating such orders, the Secretary of State, in addition to achieving equality in the population of districts and insuring that all areas of the state are completely and accurately encompassed in such districts, shall be guided by the following standards:
(a) Gaps in the description of any district shall be completed in a manner which results in a total description of that district in a manner which is consonant with the description of adjacent districts and results in complete contiguity of districts;
(b) Areas of the state included within the descriptions of more than one district shall be allocated to the district having the lowest population;
(c) Areas of the state not included within the descriptions of any district shall be allocated to the adjacent district having the lowest population;
(d) In the event that the area subject to corrected description or allocation as provided in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of this clause is of such size or contains such population that its inclusion as a unit in any district would result in substantial disparity in the size, shape or population of such district, then the Secretary of State may allocate portions of such area to two or more districts; and
(e) In any allocation of area or correction of descriptions made pursuant to this resolution, the Secretary of State shall, consistent with the foregoing standards, preserve the contiguity and compactness of districts and avoid the unnecessary division of political subdivisions.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That copies of such orders shall be filed by the Secretary of State in his own office and in the offices of the affected commissioners of election and registrars. The Secretary of State may adopt reasonable rules regulating the procedure for applications for orders under this resolution in the manner of serving and filing any notice or copy of orders relating thereto. Upon the filing of such an order, the description of any affected district shall be deemed to have been corrected in the manner provided in such order to the full extent as if such correction had been contained in the original description set forth in this resolution.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the Standing Joint Legislative Committee on Reapportionment is directed to provide all information necessary to assist the counties in identifying the boundaries of the districts described in this resolution.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the redistricting contained in this resolution shall supersede any prior redistricting, and any prior redistricting shall be null and void upon the date this resolution is effectuated pursuant to the provisions of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 or pursuant to a final decision by any court of competent jurisdiction, whichever shall first occur.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That this resolution shall be placed in the editor's notes that follow Section 5-1-3, Mississippi Code of 1972.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That if any paragraph, sentence, clause, phrase of any part of this resolution is declared to be unconstitutional or void or if for any reason is declared to be invalid or of no effect, the remaining paragraphs, sentences, clauses, phrases or parts thereof shall be in no manner affected thereby but shall remain in full force and effect.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the Chairman of the Senate Elections Committee, with the assistance of counsel employed by the Standing Joint Legislative Committee on Reapportionment, is hereby directed to submit this resolution, immediately upon its adoption by both houses of the Legislature, to the Attorney General of the United States or to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in accordance with the provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended and extended.
